Is there a function on the forum that marks all threads as read, if there is no activity on the thread, after a certain time period? If so what is the time period?
Not that I'm aware of.Is there a function on the forum that marks all threads as read, if there is no activity on the thread, after a certain time period? If so what is the time period?

I have certain threads that linger out there, unread by me, for a month or more. I have to manually flag them as read via the "Mark Forum As Read" menu option.
When you're looking at a forum, right above the "Last Post" column is a drop-down for "Forum Tools". Second option there is "Mark This Forum Read". That goes through and marks every message in the forum as read.Where is the option?
I always just hit "New Posts" and then scan through and read what looks interesting and when I'm done I go to the Quick Link menu in the blue menu bar at the top of the page and click the "Mark Forums Read" item. That cleans the slate so that when I come back again I always start where I left off.Where is that menu option Kevin??
99% of the time, I just hit "New Posts" at the top of the page and scroll through the list looking at titles of interest to read... I really hate it when I get to page three and halfway down it says, "the following threads have no new posts but still contain unread replies" and then continues to have another 8 pages listed like that after it...
It'd be nice to mark all the extras as "marked as read" once in awhile just to thin the herd on the 'still contains unread posts' once in awhile-- after all, if I didn't read it the first time, I'm not too worried that somebody else replied to stuff like "word association for all TRF'ers" a month ago...
I've just had a poke around, and if a thread or forum doesn't receive any new posts for 10 days it will be considered "read" by the software, whether you've read the thread or not.I did the mark all forums read thing a while back (at least 9 months ago) but haven't used it since. I checked a few of the forums that I don't visit frequently and everything pre March 16, 2010 is marked as read, any thoughts? Thanks for looking into it.
